racial bias traffic stops
Philadelphia has taken steps to ban its police officers from initiating traffic stops for minor infractions, a move that should prompt a collective sigh of relief for Black drivers, in particular, who are disproportionately targeted for such moving violations.
A recent study found police officers have more pleasant interactions with white drivers than their Black counterparts using a compilation of body camera data.
The DOJ sent a letter to state and municipal courts instructing them to stop targeting poor people for profit. This comes in the aftermath of a scathing DOJ report of the Ferguson police and courts that targeted poor blacks for fines.
